  • 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' Casts Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne

Marvel's jam-packed Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con had plenty of exciting announcements, including new trailers for both Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther, but there was also some significant casting news for another upcoming Marvel film, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Yes, Pfeiffer joins the cast as the long-lost Wasp, wife to Michael Douglas's Hank Pym. Her daughter Hope is going to be the Wasp in the new movie!

Hank Pym will eventually pass on the role of Giant-Man to Foster, as he eventually retired from being a superhero even before the disappearance of Janet van Dyne. You can check out the tweet below.

More recently, Fishburne has had a supporting role at Marvel's rival studio DC, playing Daily Planet editor Perry White in 2013's Man of Steel and last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Whew - that's a lot of heavy hitters being added into Ant-Man and the Wasp in one day! Michael Douglas, who plays Hank Pym, is now 72, but in Ant-Man, he's convincingly de-aged with CGI in a flashback. She was also said to be the chairman of The Avengers. They are Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, Randall Park and Hannah John-Kamen.

Marvel announced that Laurence Fishburne will be playing Dr. Bill Foster, best known as another size-changer, Goliath, in Marvel Comics.
